Epistaxis (nose bleeding) is one of the most common emergency care conditions in a medical facility. In most cases, nose bleeding will stop after a few first aid procedures. However, there are instances when it is persistent and requires a more elaborate medical procedure.
The severity of the epistaxis depends on the source of the bleeding. For example, for an arterial nasal passage, you only need to pinch the nose for around 10minutes to stop the bleeding. However, for the external nasal passage, you might have to first identify the source of bleeding before placing a nasal tampon to stop it.
While nasal tampons are ideal for stopping persistent nasal bleeding, there are some of the risks associated such as injury to the nasal mucosa, infections like toxic shock syndrome and rebleeding when the pack is removed. To avoid these risks, you need top-quality nasal tampons.
